Re: iPad download
by John C Frain

On an Android phone or tablet and on an Amazon Fire tablet one can install Userland which offers a choice of Linux systems. Gretl 2016d is available as a package in this system. The gretl graphic interface does not fit well on a mobile phone but it is just about usable on a 10 inch Fire tablet. I presume that one might be able to use the command line. I have used the octave command line in Userland for some calculations.

That is not possible.
Gretl is a computer only software. There are a lot of dependencies libraries that are not available in mobile (tablet, smartphones) devices.

Hi everybody,
How can I download Gretl for iPad?
Thanks in advance

Gretl crashed again while opening data series with data string that gretl didn't like.
by Fred Engst

Sorry, Allin, more work for you.
When I opened excel file downloaded from FRED called usrec.xls
window opened asking import from c1 r1, so I clicked OK,
it crashed.
This is repeatable.
I found out that the reason for crash has to do with the headers from the FRED file that had a lot of information before the real data starts on row 11.
After deleting the first 10 rows, if I save the file
1. in csv format, it will be OK. The dates are ok too.
2. in xlsx format, it will not crash, but the dates were not read-in. I had to set the dates myself.
3. In xls format, I get this message:
Expected numeric data, found string:
"1854-12-01" at row 2, column 1
Perhaps you need to adjust the starting column or row?
So, it shouldn’t crash just because I imported the wrong kind of data.
Furthermore, there is some kind of inconsistency between the different file format when gretl deciding on the date value.
Thanks in advance for all your work.
Fred
Attached is the crash report.

About the invcdf function for discrete distributions
by Alecos Papadopoulos

Are we sure that the invcdf function works correctly for the case of
discrete distributions?
The inverse CDF method of generating a random variable using a
Uniform[0,1] is valid also for discrete rv's (by using the generalized
inverse), so I tried
<hansl>
series U = randgen(U,0,1) # generate Uniform(0,1)
series Xd = invcdf(P, 2, U) # generate Poisson with mean 2
</hansl>
but the Xd series did not have integer values, so it cannot be a Poisson rv.

Create panel dataset
by ΑΝΔΡΕΑΣ ΖΕΡΒΑΣ

Hi all,
Just a quick question: suppose that one has several files with time
series, e.g. several files with macro data, each file for a country (or
maybe one file with time series from several countries). Is there a way
to create from hansl a panel dataset, without copying (stacking) the
data into a spreadsheet?
Many thanks in advance,
Andreas

Re: Gretl-users Digest, Vol 152, Issue 31 - the invcdf function
by Alecos Papadopoulos

I found the following in
https://github.com/poliastro/cephes/blob/master/src/pdtr.c
*
*
* SYNOPSIS:
*
* int k;
* double m, y, pdtr();
*
* y = pdtr( k, m );
*
*
*
* DESCRIPTION:
*
* Returns the sum of the first k terms of the Poisson
* distribution:
*
* k j
* -- -m m
* > e --
* -- j!
* j=0
*
* The terms are not summed directly; instead the incomplete
* Gamma integral is employed, according to the relation
*
* y = pdtr( k, m ) = igamc( k+1, m ).
*
* The arguments must both be positive.

Hi,I am trying to rolling windows forecasting with GARCH model. I have codes for that but it is not working. Does anyone know what is the issue? I have obs. 1-2409.
smpl 23 500GARCH_11<=garch 1 1 ; return const -q
scalar T = $tmax
scalar t = $t2loop while t<=T -q
print GARCH_11 -o if t<T

Resample without replacement
by Ioannis A. Venetis

Hi all,
From what I see, Matlab uses
======
p = randperm(n)
p = randperm(n,k)
Description
p = randperm(n) returns a row vector containing a random permutation of
the integers from 1 to n inclusive.
p = randperm(n,k) returns a row vector containing k unique integers
selected randomly from 1 to n inclusive.
======
to create an index of integers that can be used then to select/permute
the columns (or rows) of a matrix
